Give Me Security, Give Me Convenience, or Give Me Both!

Tue, 2019-11-26 01:02

Joe Galanek, EDUCAUSE Review

When it comes to information security, well-informed paranoia is a good trait for everyone to cultivate.1 Security remains at the top of the EDUCAUSE list of “Top Ten IT Issues” year after year, reflecting the importance of cybersecurity and the need to foster an institutional culture of security. Even though it is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, convenience is still an important consideration, right? Why would someone bother going through extra steps for a login when a quick social login with Facebook or Google is so much more convenient?2 Do you really need a password manager if you add a symbol, dollar sign, or ampersand to your dog’s birthday? (Yes!) But in an age of unprecedented convenience, don’t people deserve ease, utility, and simplicity?3 In fact, aren’t things like social logins and online shopping catering to the desire for convenience?

Five Facts about Student Loans

Mon, 2019-11-25 01:09

Kadja Yilla & David Wessel, Brookings

Americans owe about $1.5 trillion on their student loans–more than they owe on their credit cards. The increase in total student debt, stories of families struggling with six-figure loans, and the response of politicians to anxiety about student debt among young voters have turned student debt into a high-profile issue. To inform that conversation, here are five facts about student loans drawn from an event – Student loans: A look at the evidence – hosted by the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at Brookings.

The future of employment in an age of automation: A long-read Q&A with Carl Benedikt Frey

Mon, 2019-11-25 01:05

American Enterprise Institute

Will the rise of robots and artificial intelligence deliver a prosperous economy? And what policies should we adopt to ensure that all Americans are included in this prosperity? On this episode, Carl Benedikt Frey discusses the impacts of technological progress on the economy, past and present. Dr. Frey is the Oxford Martin Citi Fellow at Oxford University, where he teaches economics and economic history. In 2013, he co-authored a widely-shared paper with Michael Osborne titled “The Future of Employment: How Susceptible Are Jobs to Computerisation?” in which he estimated that 47 percent of jobs were susceptible to automation.

Rift Over State Reciprocity Rules

Mon, 2019-11-25 01:03

By Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed

New federal rules on distance education highlight long-standing tensions between consumer advocates seeking stronger state-level protections for students and higher education groups seeking shared national standards. Robyn Smith, a consumer advocate who served on the negotiated rule-making panel, said the final rules published by the department in late October are not consistent with what the panel agreed to in April. “I am outraged by the final regulations,” Smith wrote in a statement earlier this month. Smith, a lawyer who is counsel to the National Consumer Law Center and a senior attorney for the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, said the department substantially changed the distance education regulation “without sufficient factual justification.”

Is online learning the future of education?

Sun, 2019-11-24 01:10

By Bernadette Hsiao, Sheffield University Forge

Undoubtedly, with the advance of science and technology, online learning has become an easily accessible alternative form of education with huge potential. It offers a level of convenience and flexibility which is crucial to learners living in this fast-paced society. Yet it is lacking in aspects that traditional learning can only offer, such as socialising and hands on teachers. Will online learning replace traditional on-campus education one day? Or will traditional on-campus education continue to thrive and complement with online learning? Only the future holds the answer.

Jessica Hallman, Penn State
First as a Penn State World Campus student and now as an alumnus, Chase Kelly has fully immersed himself in the University community. As an undergraduate student, he traveled to State College multiple times a year, attended football games, served as president of the Blue & White Society, participated in the Phi Kappa Phi honor society, and was one of the first members of the World Campus Tech Club. Perhaps one of the most unique ways that Kelly integrated himself into the campus community was through his virtual participation at HackPSU, an annual student-run 24-hour hackathon at Penn State.

In the digital era, modern technologies like augmented reality and virtual reality have transformed business practices, entertainment, and day-to-day lives. Likewise, immersive technologies have evolved education by enabling immersive learning experiences. However, education isn’t limited to academics. Learning new skills, traveling to exotic locations, and exploring interactive stories are non-conventional forms of education that are offered by immersive technologies. Hence, immersive technologies are being widely adopted across the globe.

Online resource roll-out can address teacher shortage – network

Sat, 2019-11-23 01:10

Newsie (NZ)

The Education Ministry has forecast a shortage of up to 2000 teachers by 2025 and schools in the NetNZ network believe their model could help.  Darren Sudlow from NetNZ said it had been helping schools, most of them in the South Island, share teachers for many years and there were probably about 360 schools involved in similar networks around the country.  “What it means is you are locating specialist teachers in various parts of the country and you’re able to enrol students into those courses, it means you don’t have to actually have your teachers located on site in your school,” he said.

The David O. McKay Library has more than books that tell stories. It also holds the stories of the people who work there, including Ina Rodino’s. Rodino, BYU-Idaho’s online learning librarian, works with the online curriculum designers and makes sure online students have access to the resources they need. This includes being constantly available for students who are looking for online research help. “My hours are more open than most librarian hours, so I can meet with students when they have time,” Rodino said. “We have chat that’s available 24/6 so that students can always get help when they need it.”

By Rhea Kelly, Campus Technology
A recent report found that four out of five working learners do some of their learning online, and more than half (53 percent) are enrolled in courses that are entirely online. In fact, 42 percent of respondents said that “offering fully online classes and coursework” was their most important factor when choosing a school for continued education. The 2019 Working Learner Index, produced by child care and education benefits company Bright Horizons, is based on a survey of more than 31,000 workers who are going back to school while on the job.

Online learners deserve the same engaging experience as traditional learners — and colleges have good reason to make it happen. Statistics indicate the global online education market is expected to top more than $130 billion in the next few years. Meanwhile, on-campus enrollment is dropping, and the number of students turning to online education is steadily growing. But there is more to these trends than meets the eye.

Ilker Koksal, Forbes

Online education brings countless benefits from lower fees and location freedom to extra flexibility in terms of choosing your courses and the time you want to invest in studying. According to the eLearning Industry, North America alone will constitute 40% of the market, which will equal to $120 billion by 2025.  As the world itself and business go through intensive a phase of globalization and the transformation of formats and approaches of existence and activity – which will lead to a change in the needs of employers and society, which will inevitably change educational trends – online learning will most often be in demand and as a result will be improved and developed at a great pace!

What Is 5G?

Wed, 2019-11-20 01:04

By Sascha Segan, PC Magazine

All of the US carriers have now launched some form of 5G cellular network. But what exactly is 5G, and how fast is it compared with 4G? Here are the facts we know so far. It’s messy. It’s very early days. And if you like new technology, it’s very exciting. The early 5G rollouts are more like a public beta test than a final product. AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile are all using technologies that only travel about 800 feet from a cell site, which means there isn’t much coverage. All four carriers are waiting for upgrades to their base stations that will improve coverage, speed, and reliability. Around the end of this year or the beginning of 2020, AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile all intend to launch 5G networks that use existing 4G spectrum, which will have slower speeds but broader coverage.
